Share with your lawyer as much information as you recall about your drug or medical device injury

You should share as much information as possible with your lawyer. The more that your lawyer knows about the medication that you took, the side effects you suffered, and the impact of those side effects on your life, the better.

Start by Sharing What You Share With Your Doctor

While the reasons for describing your symptoms may differ—and although the help offered by a doctor and Milwaukee prescription drug injury lawyer definitely differs—the symptoms that you should describe to both your doctor and your lawyer are the same. You should describe everything that you are experiencing since you began taking the prescription medication, and you should be specific about how those symptoms have impacted your ability to work, to go about your daily living activities, and to do the things you enjoy.

Your attorney needs to understand the symptoms that you are experiencing so that your attorney can advise you about your legal options. Patients who become plaintiffs in class action cases share common injuries from the same drug manufactured by the same pharmaceutical company. In order to determine if you are eligible to join the class of plaintiffs and to secure your potential recovery, your lawyer needs to understand what happened to you as a result of taking a specific medication.

If you are unsure about whether to share something with your lawyer, you should go ahead and share it. There is no harm in providing more information than necessary, but there is a significant risk to not providing enough information. Additionally, you should be prepared to answer all of your lawyer’s questions.
